The legendary Hank Williams Jr. has kicked 2017 into high gear with a handful of rollicking performances thus far. Never one to slow down, the country music icon has added additional shows to his summer concert calendar. Included in his run are a handful of co-headlining shows with Lynyrd Skynyrd and special guest Aaron Lewis.
Hank Jr. continues to promote his most recent album It’s About Time, which achieved the highest studio album debut of his career. The album skyrocketed to No. 2 on Billboard’s Top Country Albums and broke the Top 10 on Billboard’s Top 200, landing at No. 8.
Hank Jr.’s extremely impressive resume has spawned 70 million albums sold worldwide, six PLATINUM albums, 20 GOLD albums, 13 No. 1 albums and 10 No. 1 singles. Hank Jr. has been named ACM Entertainer of the Year, CMA Entertainer of the Year and BMI Icon in addition to winning a GRAMMY and being inducted into the Nashville Songwriters Hall of Fame.
In October 1982, Williams had nine albums on the Billboard music charts at the same time, a feat unequaled by any other living artist. In 1987, Hank won the first of five straight Entertainer of the Year awards voted to him by his peers, and won his first ever Grammy.
As a touring artist, Hank Jr. was a pioneer in bringing arena rock production values to country music, and he remains one of the most consistent ticket sellers in music, period, as generation after generation gets turned on to one of the most dynamic live performers ever to take the stage.
